Summary "This volume is your introduction to chest radiology. The book approaches cardiopulmonary radiology from a clinician's standpoint, starting with a straightforward, practical foundation in chest radiograph interpretation. You'll also learn the basics of all the latest imaging technologies, including MRI, high-resolution CT, multidetector CT, and PET, and you'll learn when these imaging techniques are most effective in solving clinical problems." "A uniform, consistent presentation makes the material easy to master. Digital-quality illustrations, concise text, and many helpful algorithms and tables make it simple to find the information you need quickly. Each chapter has a "Pearls for Clinicians" section which gives you expert guidance for common clinical problems." "This edition features new information on pulmonary infection, chronic diffuse lung disease, heart disease and the evaluation of pulmonary modules. The second edition also features up-to-date information on the use of multidetector CT to evaluate pulmonary emboli and diseases of the thoracic aorta. Throughout the book the authors make liberal use of multidetector CT images as learning devices that increase your expertise in evaluating chest radiographs."--BOOK JACKET.
